Maintenance Shed Fire

Around 1:00 AM on April 24 as our campus maintenance building went up in flames. Unfortunately, nothing was saved. Thousands of dollars’ worth of tools and equipment used to maintain the campus and Apple Harvest are gone. 
The Apple Harvest committee met to make plans for a new building, replacing equipment and what this year’s festival will look like with social distancing. We are moving forward and we need you to move with us. Though insurance will cover much of what was lost, we need to raise about $50,000 to replace everything.
